car sounds like a helicopter

edited November -1 in Repair and Maintenance
I have a 99 Saturn SC1, and it is making what sounds like a helicopter noise. The sound may be bad wheel bearing...not sure. It sounds like the noise is coming from the rear passenger side tire and a little from the engine (though it could just be under the car), and as I get to high way speeds the becomes louder and more frequent--as though my car might take off! I'm curious if it is in fact a wheel bearing--PLEASE HELP!
